Opening day at Parks & Rec Diner is finally here. The restaurant swings open at 7 a.m. today with a menu by chef Sarah Welch chock full of breakfast staples like strata, Dutch babies, and bloody marys. Parks & Rec is fashioned like a classic diner with round stools at the counter, but also takes cues from its name with features like park bench-styled green booths and chairs. The new restaurant is smaller than its sister tavern, Republic, and doesn't accept reservations, so be sure to get there early.
Parks & Rec opens daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the G.A.R. Castle.
